More detail on the Scott Plasma 3 – PICS!!

So, I have taken some stills from the video we showed the other day , and my heart raced as I saw the images that have been shown. This will definitely go down to the wire as this is a visual copy of the front end of the Giant bike that I showed before last years Tour de France.

Interestingly enough, Scott seems to think its rear end is still faster. They are also employing the frame bottle that we now find on the Cervelo P4 , which I rode in Kona last year.

This is easily one of the best bikes on paper. Its quite interesting that they Highroad Columbia team are not riding standard Plasma 2 bikes – they obviously deem them far inferior to what they got from Giant. Hence the urgency to get this project off the ground.

Lets get to those pics now.

You can see the integrated front end - no traditional fork or aerobars. Very Giant-esque

Although we see the rear is still very Plasma 2. Except that bit where the water bottle goes a la P4.

From the back of the front end, we can see how deep the head tube now is, and how smooth it looks minus all the cables.

with a "fake" ballistics gel type rider on, you can see how clean it is. What is up with the single front fork though?

keep your eyes open and your ear to the ground… this is going to get FUN!

Are there no original ideas anymore? Seems like all the latest products are variations of one frame.

sometimes its not necessary to reinvent the wheel.

i think the bike looks great, and the front end is very clean. with the UCI pushing limits for whats allowed and what is not, the small differences make all the difference.

in the end, the engine of the rider, and the position of the rider are key to the overall performance, and thats still the most important stuff to consider.
